    Abstract:
    © Oxford University Press, 2014. This chapter focuses on how emotional processing in the amygdala and related limbic regions interact with frontoparietal attentional control systems and the visual processing stream. Such effects have been elucidated by studying neurologic patients with brain damage, as well as by functional brain imaging methods in healthy individuals. A systematic treatment of attentional biases in affective disorders is beyond the scope of this chapter, although it mentions some studies that investigate how anxiety as a trait marker moderates emotion-attention interactions. It also considers the time course of emotional influences on visual processing that have been revealed by event-related potential (ERP) studies in humans.
